  • April 04, 2011 Beautiful Piece

    My school is currently learning this song to play at Festival. It is by far my favorite piece yet and quite easy to play. It's good for all ages and is probably a good piece to have. None of the notes are really high or really low and the...

    key signature is pretty easy so this song is great for beginners and even those with much experiance. Even if you are a great player already, It's an amazing piece to play and I highly recomend it. In fact I wish they had a download of this because I would listen to this all day. This really is a must buy.
